An Evaluation of the American Cancer Society Elementary School Public Education Programs.
Lave, Janice S.; And Others
Two curriculum kits developed by the American Cancer Society, "An Early Start to Good Health" (K-3) and "Health Network" (4-6), were evaluated. Subjects of the study were 26 elementary school teachers and their students. Volume 1 of this report offers an overview of the evaluation findings on both kits and two outside evaluations of the programs. Volume 2 presents a description of the evaluation design and details the contents of the materials in the four units comprising "An Early Start to Good Health." Specific findings are reported on each unit, including responses from a teacher questionnaire and data from teacher and student interviews. A summary of findings is given and the instruments used in the evaluation are appended. Volume 3 follows the format of the second volume, presenting comprehensive information on specific findings for "Health Network," the second kit. An analysis of the readability and comprehension levels of both curriculum kits is included in this volume. Volume 4 reports findings of a survey on how teachers used both curriculum kits and implemented the programs in their classrooms. (JD)
